WASHINGTON -- An out-of-court deal, made on the last night of the Bush administration, may make it impossible for churches to teach their faith when they use federal funds to pay for sex education to teen-agers.After a nearly decade-long court battle that once went to the Supreme Court, a constitutional challenge to churches that use so-called "Chastity Act" money was settled late Tuesday night -- two days before the trial was to start today.The dispute was between religious figures opposed to government endorsement of religion and the federal government and church-run projects.

WEDNESDAY WAS the perfect night for trick-or-treating. The moon was full and bright. The sky was clear, dark and scattered with stars. The air was warm enough for little princesses and pirates to shuffle through the leaves in their costumes, unencumbered by heavy winter jackets. But most of my Halloween candy still sits in a bowl by the front door. Usually, we welcome 60 or 70 trick-or-treaters. This year, we saw fewer than 30. Standing on the sidewalk with some neighbors that evening, I thought the silence was almost eerie.

In many cities, news that a five-year contraceptive implant would be available in school-based health clinics would cause a firestorm of criticism. In Baltimore, The Sun's report that the city health commissioner has formed a consortium of doctors, hospitals and private foundations to make Norplant available to sexually active teen-agers was met with relatively minor mutterings.Meanwhile, the story drew national attention, including a front-page story in the New York Times and a full-page report in Newsweek.

Banks value customers who pay bills on timeI can only imagine that Sun reporter Robert A. Erlandson was taking exceptional poetic license when he wrote (Perspective section, April 24) that people who pay their bills on time are considered deadbeats.His provocative statement is one of those ill-conceived urban myths, like alligators in New York sewers, that is so out of line it gets repeated by people who don't take time to investigate the facts.Many, many valued bank card customers choose to pay their balances in full every month, thus receiving free use of bank funds.

Marquis Page has been tempted, plenty of times. "I could have a baby, the situations I've been in," he says. But so far, the witty, outgoing 19-year-old has stayed chaste. He traces his discipline to the weekly abstinence classes he attends at New Creation Christian Church in Northeast Baltimore. Led by the program's charismatic director, Anthony Allen, a group of 20 to 35 teen-agers meets every Wednesday night in the church basement. Sitting in a large circle, they talk openly about the physical and emotional risks of premarital sex, the pull of peer pressure and the reality of hormone-fueled adolescent urges.

Guiding LightEditor: It was nice to see some recognition in your Nov. 18 Gallimaufry for Nolan Rogers, the extraordinary tour guide at the new stadium.Nolan has been gracious enough to allow me to tag along (and bring friends and family as well) on over half a dozen of the hundreds of tours he has given.I've never been bored. His wit, enthusiasm and knowledge of the history of the Camden Yards area were as evident at the end of the last tour as they were at the beginning of the first.I hope the Maryland Stadium Authority knows what a gem it has in this man.Jamie Hunt.
